More than a concert; an unforgettable memory!
Music icon Elton John, returns to New Zealand in 2021, for the rescheduled dates on his epic Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour.
Between December 2019 and March 2020, the legendary performer delivered his famed songbook to spellbound audiences, on his very last tour, playing across a mammoth run that includes Capital City concerts, along with stops at some of Australia & New Zealand’s finest outdoor venues.
Elton John’s three-year Farewell Yellow Brick Road global tour has already been hailed as one of his most “energetic, dazzlingly-original and joyful celebrations”. Elton’s legendary catalogue, including beloved songs ‘Bennie and the Jets’, ‘Rocket Man’, ‘Tiny Dancer’, ‘Crocodile Rock’, ‘Philadelphia Freedom’ and more, are showcased in a musical masterpiece that is a “reflective and stunning tribute to a great artist’s career” (NME), also celebrating his 50-plus year collaboration with lyricist Bernie Taupin – one of the great song-writing partnerships of all time.
“I’m ecstatic and humbled to continue to play for audiences across the globe. I plan to bring to my final tour the passion and creativity that has entertained my fans for decades…It’s the most produced and fantastic show I’ve ever done. I want to go out with a bang…” – Elton John
